And apparently 7/31 is Happy B-day to Monte, who spent it once taping Jerry's B-day show! I was wondering how many B-day shows Jerry played -- not too many, it seems, just '73, '82 and '94 -- but here's a twofer where the first one, like 7/31/82, went past midnight. Monte contributed reviews to both. Pretty cool to spend your birthday making a tape, which is ultimately a gift to others.

Haven't heard the shows. Mixed reviews, but some of them point to neat stuff:

Yeeeah, if you haven't heard 8/1/73, definitely put that on your to-do list.
